Lauren Fryer Boudoir is a portion of Lauren Fryer Photography focused on capturing the true beauty and confidence in each woman...regardless of shape, size, or age.
Is the session private? Do you share my images?
Sessions can be 100% private. If you want to combine sessions with a few girlfriends that is ok with me! I want you to be the most comfortable, if that's a private session, or a girls day...it's completely up to you!
The only other person present at your shoot (if 100% private) is myself. Sometimes I will bring a female assistant to help.
Images are NEVER shared anywhere without your permission. If I think you may be willing to share some images, I will ask for permission to use specific images, and let you know my ideas with them. I want you to be comfortable, so you are the ultimate decider on if these images are able to be shared. There's NO requirement to share images in order to book a session.
Do you offer retouching? Can you remove bruises, scars, blemishes, cellulite, etc?
Retouching is included with every session. I remove scars as requested, acne, blemishes, stretchmarks and cellulite in addition to bruises and other random marks you may have on the day of your session!
Please note: I do not do extensive "body reshaping" as part of my retouching, but I work with clients to find the most flattering poses for their shape during their session, which makes this unnecessary.
Are makeup and hair included?
Every session includes full makeup and simple hair styling. Getting your makeup and hair done keeps you at ease and makes you feel even more glamorous. But more importantly, having a professional do your makeup means you will have camera-ready makeup that will truly make you feel and look special and sexy!
If you have a very specific hair style in mind, or ethnic hair or simply want to come with your hair fully styled, that is fine.
How long will the session take?
Plan to spend at least 4 hours at the studio. 2 hours for hair and makeup and about 2 hours for the session.
What should I bring to the session?
I will provide you with suggestions on things to bring to your session in an email "tip sheet" you'll receive upon reserving your session.
In general here are some things you'll want to bring:
- 4 to 5 outfit changes like a mix of lingerie, special items (like a favorite shirt of his or jersey) and any other fun props
- Accessories - jewelry (long and short necklaces, bracelets, rings, ect) and other items like a veil/sexy robe...
- Sexy shoes! And comfy shoes to just hang out in during hair and makeup!
Do I bring my own clothes? Do you have some I can use?
You do need to bring your own outfits. I wish I could have a full wardrobe for everyone, but unfortunately I don't have that kind of closet (bummer). Bring what makes you feel sexy, confident, and fabulous. If you need some ideas on where to buy outfits, let me know and I can pass along some store names.
I don't know how to pose.
This is by far the biggest concern for everyone! Don't worry! I am here to make you look amazing. You will notice the posing is actually a workout...if you are not sore the next day then I will be surprised! I am a perfectionist, so if it doesn't look amazing, we will keep working on the pose until it looks great. Don't do this at home! :) By that I mean, don't worry about trying poses at home that you've seen on pinterest, or on the website. Each pose is unique to each woman. I will pose you the way I see is best, and that can be hard to do by yourself in front of a mirror!
When will I see my session images?
After your session, I like to schedule your preview appointment. This appointment will be about 7-10 days after your session. This is when you will come to my studio and preview the images. From there you can make your selections on what products are a good fit for you.
Do you offer boudoir parties?
I do offer private parties for you and your close girlfriends! It's a great way to bond and have some fun. Some girls even like to incorporate it into a bachelorette party, have your hair and make up done, then spend the night on the town!
Groups of 4 or more receive discounted session rates. (Please note that these types of parties are usually available outside the busy season - which is typically summer through fall.)
It is important for every single person to feel beautiful, empowered, and confident in themselves. What better way to do that then have a session that shows off why you are so beautiful, and what makes you...you!
Sessions are $300 and include hair and makeup.
Packages start at $550. No minimum purchase is required.
Sessions can be done in the studio, your home, a friends home, or a hotel.
Hair and Makeup is available *already included in the price* please contact us for more information!
